I have visited this museum with school children over 20 times, and with my children and grandchildren as well. There is so much to see if you are interested in Utah Pioneer artifacts, documents, and photographs: Clothing, furniture, tools, weapons, linens, china, eyeglasses, dolls, musical instruments . . . it's all here. There are not interactive displays. It has changed little in fifty years. For history buffs and researchers, the docents can help locate specific articles. Each item is numbered and cataloged. If you go with children, be sure to ask for their scavenger hunt. It will take you on a fun adventure through the museum. Don't miss the restored fire engine (not a Pioneer relic but a "Wow!" to see). I discover something new and interesting every time I walk through. It's free and open daily Monday through Saturday. Bring a picnic lunch and eat on the State Capitol grounds (right across the street). Spend an hour or two at the museum and then take a 45 minute free guided tour of the Utah State Capitol. The parking is free, and the sites are very interesting and family friendly.
